Sepia-toned image of nebulous shadows of what looks like plants
An interplay of shadows

This is not what it seems.

I was walking along a sidewalk at night and noticed the shadows created by the street lamps and landscape lights. If you tilt your head to your left, you’ll see what I saw at my feet.

But when I rotated it, it felt like a mysterious scene.


Palm Fibres

Close-up of palm tree

Hoping to get surf shots, I went to a local beach Monday. Even though it was foggy, I tried to get interesting photos. But most of them turned out pretty generic.

So I turned around and shot a lot of the plants, trees, and rocks in the area.With an overcast sky, I was able to pick up lots of texture.

This is a close-up of a living palm tree, at the juncture where the leaves fold out from the trunk. From afar, the palm tree looks like a regular palm tree, but up close, you can discover texture, movement, layers, and color. This image almost feels like a textile composition.
